president obama winning when you look at the state-by-state analysis in ohio and florida and virginia and pennsylvania, you can't be happy about that if you're mitt romney, can you? >> no. and this is why democrats -- this is why incumbents and especially democrats have pushed for these early voting, that they really want it because it cuts into the time for mitt romney, in this case, to challenge the democratic incumbent, to come in and try to knock him down a peg. this is really a question about turnout. the people who are likely to be early voters are unlikely to be persuadable voters. if you care enough about politics that you're willing to go down to the county courthouse six weeks in advance, you're probably not drift anything the wind. but the key here, again, is that it gives democrats who struggle on person-by-person turnout versus republicans more time to load up vans, get people down to the courthouse -- megyn: question for you before i let you go, do we know how people, when we get to november 6th, are we going to get to know where they stand? >> no. but what we will get,
campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of this discussion over polling and who is where, is ignoring a much larger story. the rise of the independent voters in this country. this could play into the next week's debate and election just five weeks from now. chris stirewalt is host of power-play on fox news.com. the rise of the independents. what do you mean? >> is something we have seen for 20 years, but accelerating in the last decade. republicans keep saying, don't pay attention to these polls. the democrats outnumber the republicans in these polls. that's not how it's going to be, that misses the larger truth. the number of republicans and democrats are both down. independents are up. independent voters continue to go up. people are not as tied to tight a partisan w
matter. if you look at polls in ohio and virginia, in the states where this will get decided. nationally he could move up 4 points in california. who cares. it's 10% of the country -- megyn: californians and new yorkers and the blue people come out and say yes, yes yes. even fox news had a poll out that showed a big lead for president obama in those critical swing states, in florida, virginia and ohio. yet rasmussen is showing a much tighter race. >> it's apples and oranges. it's a question of who you are measuring. it's not a perfect universe. some of these oversampled democrats. some of them undersampled. you should measure one poll against another poll. look at gallup poll and see if there is movement within the same organization. but we don't do that anymore. we have so many polls that basically you measure everything. the campaigns have their own polling. both campaigns will tell you this is a dead-even race. it's a 3-4 point differential. bus they say 95 out of 100 times. every once in a while you get scene outlier in which the poll can be 10 points off. but at the end of the day t
advantage for romney in florida, 12 points in ohio and 12 points in virginia, all among military veterans. can you tell us, chris, what is going on? how is the voting bloc? >> i'm sure that many viewers like you put things back up now. the true picture is, florida, virginia, north carolina -- these are states with very substantial veteran and military populations. republicans generally do better among those who have served in the military. john mccain did not do quite as well. when you look at the narrow states come in there. if things get out of whack for the president with military voters and veterans. when we look at hispanic voters, the goal isn't mitt romney doesn't want to win from he just wants to not lose to buy as much. especially in those three states, especially in those states that he won so narrowly last time. megyn: what is the explanation for the favoritism by military veterans for mitt romney? >> one thing i should say that you referenced would be best. it would be the baddest on a pole poll that is constructed in a way that many pollsters would have relied upon. that is n
in virginia we are not better off under president obama. his defense cuts threaten over 130,000 jobs lowering home values, putting families at risk. shannon: and you could see those different ads tailored to very different states. a romney-ryan aide says the massive fun raising hall in august produced these ads starting today. some are calling it a full on carpet bomb offensive will continue right up until the voters step into the booth to make their decision. a major legal decision giving the go ahead to one of the most controversial sections of arizona's immigration law. a federal judge upholding the requirement for police to check the immigration status of anyone they detain. now some officers say that is putting them in a very tough position. trace gallagher is live in our west coast newsroom with more. hi, trace. >> reporter: it's called show me your papers. it is the most controversial part of the arizona law upheld by the supreme court now upheld by the same judge who blocked it last year. the reason susan bolton upheld it is because she said there is absolutely no proof that there has
as they head into this week of the democratic election. president obama speaking at an event in virginia a short time ago. for weeks his team has been on the attack. but now they are facing new head winds with that new poll from the hill we reported on last hour. and how voters see themselves four years after the president took office and controversy over how the president grades himself when it comes to the economy. here is what he said with a local tv station. >> reporter: your party says you inherited a bad situation. you had 3 1/2 years to fix it. what grade would you give yourself so far? >> i would say incomplete. megyn: here is ed henry a few feet below me on the floor of the time-warner cable arena. >> reporter: this is the second straight day the president's team runs the risk of being overshadowed by one of these damned if you do, damned if you don't questions. when people like governor martin o'malley of maryland said no we are not better off, they said ah-hah. take a listen to what the president said in a little bit more of thatyou know, i would sy incomplete. historically af

points there. in virginia he showed the president up not 5, 1 in virginia. yet that poll by so many media organizations gets ignored, chris, because you tell me, they want the momentum building for the candidate that they believe in. >> there is that, and all so it was their poll so they wanted to tout it more. there is the idea that says this thing is happening. the race is shaping up as we predicted. there is also self-flattery. there is an availability cascade that goes on here. i want to remember this about the power of the narrative. and how powerful the media narrative is in an election. you were talking about trace gallagher how even in tv shows the president's 2010 health law will be touted inside these tv shows. any republican running, particularly against an incumbent democrat who is well liked by the press. any republican running will face it not just on individual stories, but it's a brushfire, a canyon fire they are trying to get through. and that's the challenge of being a republican challenger. that's the problem if you are mitt romney. megyn: we saw it when we were in tamp
states, florida, virginia and so on, but the latest real clear politics average of all polls shows president obama ahead by about five points in ohio. other polls show him up seven points, nine points, but the romney camp says their internal polls show it's very much in the margin of error. chris, thank you. >> you bet. megyn: and from our political team on the ground in ohio, reports of large crowds turning out for governor romney's event today near columbus. the fire marshal expressing concerns about the size of the crowd, a long line of folks literally seen wrapping around the school where he spoke. in less than ten minutes we will be joined by michael reagan, and we will take a look at some of those new questions today about recent polls that appear to give president obama a big lead. meantime, if you want to listen to the president's remarks, you can find them streaming live on foxnews.com, and we will also have governor romney's event there. again, foxnews.com, check it out. >>> fox news alert now on the growing controversy over the murder of four americans in libya. and ques
